will be more of an attack. the clip you played was the language that biden used about romney embracing ryan and that gets to my earlier point about this is that campaign where the democratic ticket is running as much against the vice president's policy views as they are running against the republican nominee. i think you caught what joe was talking about. they want to hone on the paul ryan budget. social security, medicare and drive the point this week. senior political reporter for political tow is work available online at "politico".com. thank you very being with us. >> thank you. steve. >>> richard is benedetto professor at the american university here in washington, d.c. joins us from florida is robert wattson a professor from the lynn university which is hosting the final presidential debate later this month. thank you for being with us. >> pleasure. >> i want to begin with you. do vice president debates matter. >> yeah. if i can go back. i liked johnathan's comments. i would simply add to the vice presidential prep or the prosecutable prep for the debates they try to recreate the actu
to want to really frame a negative message against romney and ryan, and pick up where the president didn't do that well last week, or didn't mention at all, thinking of issues like the auto ballot, social security, the ryan proposal on that. the medicare issue, the 47% comment that romney made and people were stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel
that romney and ryan are so conservative. >> i think brian's closing statement was far superior to biden. >> biden was able to speak out more. biden was sent out loud as long of a period of time as paul ryan weiss. and i suggest that when obama comes back again, he takes is some alarm clock so we can see who is talking more. >> i think it was nauseating the way that mr. biden laughed all the way through. disney take anything serious? he has been a and as incompetent as obama. >> ryan held his own. he was very strong in his answers. he was very calm, very respectful. and by the way, who put a burr in joe biden snickers? he was very sarcastic, very angry and frustrated. >> i think that there could have been more clarity on ryan's part as far as turning to deliver -- taking a little more charge and what he was trying to implement. you know, i mentioned before that the biden side was little more used car salesman. he spat out exactly how he felt about it and i think ryan could've done a lot better. >> i'm kind of frustrated that they didn't like gary johnson to be. >> i found that vice presi
ticket mitt romney and paul ryan host a rally in lancaster, ohio. and we'll have that live for you as well, starting at 5:40 p.m. eastern, also on c-span. >> can we focus on the issues and not the personalities and the mud? i think there is a need if we could take a poll here with the folks from gallup, perhaps. i think there is a real need at this point to focus on the need. >> how do you respond, how do you gentleman respond to -- >> i agree with him. >> i think in general let's talk about these, let's talk about these issues. let's talk about the programs, but in the presidency, a lot goes into it. caring goes into it. that is not particularly specific. strength goes into it in, that is not specific. standing up against aggression. that is not specific in terms of a program. this is what a president has to do. so in principle though, i'll take your point and think we ought to discuss child care or, whatever else it is. >> and you two? >> ross had his hand up. >> no hedges, if, and or buts i will take the pledge. the american people want to talk about issues and not tabloid journ
a nephew who was a marine. he did a tour in iraq and god left him, he thought for our country. and romney in mind, first off, let's get something real clear here once and for all. as far as the sequester cut goes, that is obama's being. it was congressman paul ryan thing because they were too immature to act like grown-ups and make a deal, okay? obama had nothing to do with it. it was paul ryan and the congress. selected that clear once and for all. >> host: castling. >> guest: i think one of diminished on trade issues is the question of leadership and that's we heard a lot from that romney about leadership and what kind of role is obama projecting and by extension, what leadership really seaplane as well as here at home in guiding and shaping how we use our national resources. i do think although the polls may not register that much significance to any foreign policy issue, that when it comes to the broader question of leadership, that is a part of what people are going to be casting those done. i think there's an opportunity as romney clearly identified to criticize obama as a leader. >
